When family, friends, or you visit Colombia, everyone will obviously bring back the real goods like arequipe, aguardiente and chocolate. But you better believe the Colombian treats do not end there, because this country is full of glorious regalitos with colors and textures that will have all your non-Colombian friends jealous.

You need the right cup for those beans.
Have to let everyone know where you have been and where you’re from…AT ALL TIMES.

A true symbol of Colombia.
4. Colombian Flag Bracelets
If you’ve ever been to Colombia, you have worn yellow, blue and red on your wrist at some point in your life.
5. And More Bracelets…
Your arm must have woven bracelets nearly up to your elbow to be a real one.
6. Coconut Earrings
I love the how resourceful we are. Not only do we cook the coconut and drink it, we make everything from jewelry to place mats with it!
7. Balcon Artesenal
Every Colombian has one of these gorgeously crafted balcónes hanging somewhere in their home…I promise.
8. A Woven Something

There is not material left untouched, recycled and bedazzled.
9. Clay Chiva Colombiana
They are fragile, but if they make the journey back home, they bring a pop of color to any room.
10. Colombian Soccer Jersey
Nothing more beautiful than seeing all that yellow in a crowd.
Stemming from indigenous tradition, mochilas Wayuu are vibrant handmade bags whose unique patterns and rich history are found in la Guajira region of Colombia. Everyone with the Forever 21 knockoff versions will be a bit jealous. 😝
